We're only 13? Pffft. The weather, low crime, open freeways, amazing nightlife and OMG to surfing/boogie boarding makes up for it, there is more to a "job" than the dinero. :-)

What a pay checks wow.
However, I think that being a good pro website owner can be much lucrative and for less hours work a day. At least for me.
Plus I am 12,000 miles away from NYC .. not located in the moon.

All this constant noise about Link Building around here, you'd think they would make a little more huh? It's the lowest paying job on the SEO Totem Pole. In fact, I know Refuse Technicians who make way more than that. Heck, many NYC Refuse Technicians make 6 figures per year.

Looking closely at the numbers, there's something not right with that Infographic. It looks like LA should be in the number 5 spot, not the number 2 spot. A hint that the Infographic may not be correct.

Well, there's link building and then there's link building. I do link building but I doubt I do much of what a 'link builder' does and vice versa. I gather it's a fairly forumula driven job.

Those numbers seem low to me. I'm not suggesting they're not accurate just that the income isn't anywhere near what I thought it would be.

Well, that's a universal truth isn't it.

Something is not right. Las Vegas didn't make the list. ;-)

Places to move to, for a better paid SEO job: any cheap country where you can get paid in, and access USD ( / your rich homeland currency).

On that note... any country suggestions? (this has been discussed before in Foo, but hey, the world is constantly changing - for instance, should I have Mexico cut from my shortlist by now?)
